- "Louisiana Bicentennial" -

Louisiana joins the ranks of the seventeen other states with a 200-year history. The state is rich and diverse in its culture, its resources, and its people. This award-winning design by Martin J Benoit is a celebration of Louisiana's past, incorporating many of Martin's previous works in the design.

The poster features the outline of a large fleur-de-lis, containing colored versions of selected works, composed mainly of Louisiana state symbols. The fleur-de-lis "floats" over a rectangular assortment of Martin's ink images in a light sepia screen; images specially chosen to represent a wide cross-section of state landmarks.

Surrounding this collage is a border of dates with important events in Louisiana history, each separated by a small fleur-de-lis. Above all of this, is "LOUISIANA" in large lettering, with the "U", "S", and "A" in red, white and blue, respectively. This emphasizes the large part that the Louisiana Purchase played in the country's history and growth. Every element of this poster has significance in Louisiana history, down to the edition quantities.

This collector's piece will be admired and cherished throughout the years. Available in three edition sizes, each poster is signed and numbered by the artist and available with or without matting. Also available is a 1.75" medallion in either bronze or nickel exclusively minted to go with this piece. Get yours today and celebrate this milestone in Louisiana history.
